Publisher's Summary

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he's not alone. When the lift's doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade - a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.

Just like Thomas, the Gladers don't know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they've closed tight. And every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift.

Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up - the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers.

Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind.

    Story
    "Great, but a little lacking"
    If you could sum up The Maze Runner in three words, what would they be?

    Fast paced adventure. There is always something new to mess with plans


    What other book might you compare The Maze Runner to and why?

    Hmmm... Possible the Golden Compass due to humanity's salvation being put on the shoulders of a child


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Near the beginning, when we first see Thomas in the glade. Despite the situation, the Gladers have managed to create a well functioning society. There's something beautiful about that.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I think they already did...This book is one WICKED ride.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is great and although I recommend it, there are a few things I'd change (no spoilers here though ;)

    Story
    "Maze RUNNER For Sure"

    If you're in the mood for a tale that will keep you running back for more, this may be a good choice for you. A well written story has been paired with the perfect voice of Mark Deakins to create an enthralling experience. After having seen the first movie with my son and then having him share with me that he has read all of James Dashners books, I decided that I wanted to dive a little deeper into the story. I was not disappointed at all with that decision. James Dashner has created a world and crafted his words so well that it is easy to let your imagination take hold and visualize the entire scene. I can't wait to start the next book and I feel certain that you will feel the same way. Enjoy!

    "So good"

    I love the story the ending is so good I've seen the movie but I enjoyed the book more if you have watched the movie I really recommended to listen to this audio because it's very easy to understand and you can listen to it in the car it's easy to use and very time consuming!

    "I was surprised."

    wasn't very keen to read it. but I can say it's good. the plot catches you from the beginning. it seems like the same story of this kind of book. and it it's the same plot but I realized I like this kind of books.

    "Better than expected."
    Where does The Maze Runner rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best so far, nevertheless I haven't listened to many


    What other book might you compare The Maze Runner to and why?

    Other teen adventures, like the divergent triology and the hunger games.


    What does Mark Deakins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is a good expressive reader


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, but it made me reflect.

    I commute for 4 hours a day 5 days a week via train, yet I am not a train employee...perhaps I should be.

    "Wish I hadn't seen the movie first."

    Great book, too violent for kids, but a great puzzle thriller. Very excited for the sequels.
